Jimmy Paredes showing plate discipline is overrated

One of the best stories for the Baltimore Orioles this season has been Jimmy Paredes‘ explosion onto the scene. Paredes is fifth in the American League in batting with a .319 average, ranks third on the Orioles’ roster with 38 RBIs, and has hit a ridiculous .457 with runners in scoring position. He’s done all this with only 11 walks in 59 games. Paredes is clearly not looking...

Baltimore Orioles should think long and hard about Kevin Gausman’s role

The 2015 season will go one of two ways for Baltimore Orioles top pitching prospect Kevin Gausman. Either he will spend the rest of the season in the starting rotation, or he will work out of the bullpen in middle relief. While Gausman’s ultimate future with the club is in the starting rotation, he is too valuable to the Orioles, who have been working with a six-man bullpen the...

The first player that...

Baltimore Orioles: Rise of Manny Machado

Hakuna Machado, what a wonderful phrase. And Manny Machado definitely ain’t no passing craze. He has come back to claim his third base throne and bring no worries to the Orioles’ fan base.
